Add some sweet spooky fun to your party with this Blueberry Rickety Eyeball Punch from FoodNetwork.com. It’s super easy, so kids big and small will be able to help after a little guidance. Mix these frosty eyeballs with the blueberry punch recipe below or any drink of choice for an extra icy surprise. Note: These eyeballs take about an hour to freeze, so plan accordingly.
Total Time: 1 hr 10 min
Yield: 6 to 8 servings
12 to 24 fresh blueberries
12 canned lychees in syrup, drained, plus 5 to 6 tablespoons syrup from the can
3 cups blueberry juice cocktail
1/3 cup freshly squeezed lime juice (about 4 limes)
2 cups sparkling water
1. Stick 1 to 2 blueberries, depending on their size, into the cavity of each lychee. Place on a foil-lined baking sheet and freeze, about 1 hour. (Wait until the “eyeballs” thaw a bit before eating, so that you don’t choke on them.)
2. Stir together 5 tablespoons of the lychee syrup, the blueberry juice and lime juice in a bowl or pitcher until combined. Stir in the sparkling water and add the lychee eyeballs. If it is a bit tart for your taste, add the remaining tablespoon syrup.
3. Serve in tall glasses over ice, spooning the lychee eyeballs into the glasses as you pour. For a grown-up twist, stir in the gin before adding the sparkling water. Enjoy!
